  • Lyrics
  • Union J are a four-piece UK boy band, who rose to fame after finishing fourth on the ninth series of The X Factor. The band auditioned as a trio consisting of Josh Cuthbert, Jamie Paul "JJ" Hamblett and James William "Jaymi" Hensley under the name of Triple J. Soloist George Paul Shelley was added to the group and they were renamed Union J during the series.
  • This is Union J's debut single, which was premiered by the group on Capital FM and BBC Radio One on April 22, 2013. Quizzed about the song's meaning by Capital FM, Jaymi Hensley explained: "The message of the song is [that] we've been on a massive roller coaster the last year with each other, and it's about being there for each other. It's there for the fans, we really wouldn't be here without them."
  • The single was written and produced by the British songwriter Steve Mac, who has penned numerous hits for the likes of JLS,One Direction, Westlife and The Wanted plus American hitmaker Claude Kelly, whose other credits include Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You" and Jessie J's' "Price Tag."
